New bwogger Alexandra Tsorvas attended a medical school training event that discussed the unequal power dynamics inherent in doctor-patient relationships and how to mitigate them.
New Staff Writer Anna Eggers attended a book talk by Nicole Fleetwood about her new book Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration sponsored by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
Anyone who has ever been late for a class knows that running up the uneven Steps of Low is basically impossible, even for the athletically inclined among us (i.e., not the Bwog staff). Many Columbians and pedestrians alike have puzzled over why the Steps’ spacing is so adverse towards mobility. Bwog’s Megan McGregor reports with […]
Tipster/photographer Jason Patinkin just sent the following photos Bwog’s way. “Well bwog, I hope you enjoyed the last week of sitting on the steps, because once again Columbia taketh our favorite midday hangout. Indeed the construction of wooden posts and metal bleachers across the steps begins today (or maybe yesterday),” he writes. It’s that time […]
There’s a lot of talk about Columbia students being too fortunate for our own good. That may or may not be true. But there is no question, we got lucky today. Columbia students could not have asked for a more ideal afternoon for Relay for Life. The event began at noon and will continue until […]
We told you about Pressbox, the originally named new Spec Sports blog, and now The Steps is back too! Welcome, Splog children, to the shiny world of new media (and most every other college newspaper in the country). So far they’re taking on political philosophy, national politics, sports and…nothing related to Columbia at all. But […]
Apparently, Columbia has a Masters program in Real Estate, and the entire class took up some serious real estate on the steps a few minutes ago for a group picture, prompting grumbles from loungers who were asked to relocate. Bwog overheard that at least part of the mob was headed to CBGB after the photo […]
Anna Corke reports on today’s Low Steps face sucking. Despite rainy weather, about 30-40 people showed up for The Big Kiss. The event was well-documented: two participants brought personal cameras, 3 campus news groups showed up (CTV, Bwog, Spec). One boy told me that he was planning to “make out with his camera.” First the […]
For those too lazy and apathetic and jaded by the godlessness of Columbia to go to church, the International Christian Fellowship brought the gospel to Morningside’s most degenerate pit of iniquity–the Low Steps. “In an atmosphere like this academy, we all want to believe that, given the right evidence,” one fellowshipper said, “we’re going to […]
Dear seniors, Bwog hopes that you enjoyed your alcohol on the Steps this afternoon. Just remember, even though “40 on 40” sounds cool, there’s no reason not to enjoy a “40 on 39,” a “40 on 22,” or a “40 on 14.” Please keep your options open. More photos after the jump.
A Bwog correspondent overheard some kids, probably future Columbians, as they looked at the Steps: Kid #1: Oh my God! How many people are there?! Kid #2: Probably about 50,000. Kid #3: I’d say it’s got to be 100. Yeah, it looks like 100. Kid #2: No, it’s definitely 50,000.
It’s 50 degrees outside! Celebrate the end of the week and treat yourself to an ice cream sandwich. After stopping by the Good Humor cart, walk past the Aish booth on Low Plaza. If you look Jewish enough, you might just be handed an opportunity to get “spiritual discovery” in Israel for the low, low […]
